Radical_Arcaeological_Theory_Symposium_2009


Published October 17, 2009


The theme of the conference was "Building an Anarchist Archaeology"

"The label âradical archaeologistâ carries both theoretical and practical implications. As people who wear the label proudly, we share a commitment to engage with ideas that are often considered anti-establishment, marginal, or confrontational. Moreover, we embrace a political commitment to act against entrenched systems of oppression, such as racism, sexism and discrimination; and on a larger scale all forms of colonialism and imperialism."

The Symposium featured speakers from across North America, discussing a wide range of topics within the "radical Archaeological" framework. Here are the list of speakers that were recorded along with the title of their papers:

-Edward González-Tennant: "Anarchy, Ethics, and Pedagogy in Enganged Arcaeology"

-Bill Angelbeck: "Society Against the Chiefdom: An Anarchist Analysis of Warfare and Defensive Sites in the Coast Salish, Northwest Coast"

-John Roby: "Eve of Destruction: Thoughts on an Arcaeology Against Civilization"

-James Birmingham: "Potsherds and Possibilities: Archaeology and Anarchism"

-Tom NomAd: "Clastres and Insurrectionary Action"

-Paulette Steeves: "Anarchist by Default: Red Anthropologists in a White Academia"

-Niels R. Rinehart: "Teaching Africans About African History"

-Joe Bonni: "Welcome Home: Modern Pilgrimage and Ritual Place-Making at Burning Man"

There was a closing panel discussion which included Randall H. McGuire and Maria Theresia Starzmann. There were also a few Question and Answer sections that I have shortened into one file.
